    The proliferation of illegal firearms is a constant threat to all citizens and residents of Luciana. No effort should be spared to confiscate all illicit ammunition. These misguided thugs are playing Russian roulette on the streets.

    Asou Canal..I mean the are speak for it self.People dont know you,and thry firing shots at you.Minister of Justice Hermangild Francis where is the action that you said will be put on place like the CCTV cameras,and the lights in the communities and the bush that should be cut.When will you send SSU to these Ghettos these Slums the Garrison to weed out these guns.When will you get trained police Dogs to sniff out these guns,and the criminals.When will you send SSU to search these backyards and fake pit toilets,and the bushes,my question to you is when.When will curfews be implemented in St.lucia.When will these little demons be taught that they not in control..Mr.minister i know you have 6 years but crime cannot wait,the people are desperate,nervous on edge and on pins and needles.

    Sharon is not a public figure. Cursing her would not solve one crime. I too sometimes disagree with her opinions but she’s entitled to them. We have to put an end to these nasty, loathsome personal attacks for just some innocuous statements. Do we want our children to perpetuate this type of abhorrent behavior? Instead of attacking Sharon, attack the criminals that are responsible for all these heinous.crimes. I guess you might curse me too @ Anonymous August 21, 2017 at 11:54 am.

    P.S. Sharon, please read over your comments before you post. You tend to make numerous errors.

      What am I reading the minister has six years.six years for what.to stop the shooting government need sniffer dogs.i think these dogs would be tired of sniffing.because crime is everywhere in St Lucia cct cameras you mean everywhere? Even in the bush .this would be too much on our pockets.i think sniffer dogs will be needed for all the insane advisers like you who think you know everything but are in fact giving ideas of the mentally challenged .we need capable people to do that

    Something drastic must be done ASAP to get these illegal firearms off the streets. I suggest that the police conduct an island-wide sweep starting from the northern tip of the island and ending at the southern tip or vice – versa. However in doing so they must employ the right police tactic and strategy. Getting these guns off the streets will definitely help in curbing the current crime surge facing St. Lucia.
